    It's a step up from the unarmored dune buggies (which are the alternative) when you consider the options of light tactical transport, and it looks like it'll probably have RPO/Shmel tubes.

    There is a reason why buggies are unarmored Smile And there is sure as Hell reason why M50 Ontos is not around anymore too Very Happy

    Russia will start testing a new unmanned version of its Tigr armored car, equipped with a 30-millimeter automatic gun, this year, CEO of the vehicle’s developer Military Industrial Company LCC (VPK) Alexander Krasovitsky told Sputnik.

    "Tiger-M" with combat modules BMDU "Arbalet-DM" in the troops

    Protected cars AMN-233114 "Tiger-M" with remote combat remote-controlled modules BMDU "Arbalet-DM" in the combat unit of the Southern Military District of the Armed Forces of Russia.

    BMDU "Arbalet-DM" was developed by OOO "Armory Workshops" (Shchelkovo, Moscow region) and serially produced by OJSC "Kovrov Electromechanical Plant" (Kovrov, Vladimir region). Modules were started by serial delivery to the Ministry of Defense of Russia in 2016.

    You are always so quick to criticise...

    Do you know what it is for?

    Ontos is not around any more because man portable Metis is superior in every way... but again what does that have to do with this vehicle?

    So lets get armored buggies so they cant anymore be used for what they are intended, and lets weld mean looking tubes to them to be useless balast. Lets call it... super secret Russian buggy.

    Enlight us please, what it is for, i am dying to hear. Mindstorm and kvs must have leaked you some info directly from Kremlin lol1

    That is the point... we don't know what it is for.

    Someone mentioned the open framed dune buggy type vehicles, but that was really just speculation.

    If this was for use in the desert as a dune buggy type vehicle then obvious problems include the fact that it looks like a single seater and that the armour plate seems inadequate and contradictory to the purpose of such light fast vehicles.

    Perhaps the enclosed nature of the vehicle hints that it might not be intended for hot climates like deserts and could be intended for colder wetter climates where an external shell body offers protection from cold and wet conditions... but the fact that it is a single seat vehicle is still a problem for most missions...

    When I first saw it I immediately thought it was a WWII but then still the problem... who is going to operate it... a single seat vehicle is not practical for much except things with suicide in the title.

    Makes me suspect that it is more for a computer game than a real vehicle.

    A two sea tandem model could be fitted with an ATGM setup, but I really don't see it... perhaps an arm that raises a four barrel launcher for Kornet and the optics to guide it to maybe 3-4 metres... but a Tigr is much better for that...

    The car is clearly a feasability project. The chassis isn't more different than an IAI RAM 3 or IAI Combat Guard. Weight is always helped out through different means.

    People have forgotten how painful it was for the USSR to churn out new vehicle designs. These days they sprout
    like mushrooms and too many assume that it was always this way.



    This is all there was during the 1980s. Nice to see Russia has the flexibility to test out new vehicle types and fill
    the gaps.

    That is not really true...

    There were plenty of new designs in the Soviet Union... it is just that we never heard about them.

    The AK-74 is a case in point... the west simply believed that the AKM was replaced with a smaller calibre model with a few minor refinements.

    It is now known there were plenty of alternative designs... some quite radical that failed to win but that did not mean they did not exist...

    With a small difference i would actually rather pick Uaz 469 than this. Uaz is a workhorse, donkey.

    The effort today creating small semiarmoured vehicles maybe too big. I think it is more an effort of the contractors to offer a small armoured solution, but all them are having problems with the tests and are not being finally delivered. They are fairly better than the precedents, but not reaching the current standards for combat vehicles.

    All them seem to be under the BMD-4M/BTR-MD and the Typhoon-K/Typhoon-U 6x6, that passed the tests fairly well and fast. In my view these 4 vehicles would be the right basis for the Airborne Troops, for the Naval Infantry, and for special military forces that need vehicles smaller than the Kurganets and the Boomerang.

    All these smaller vehicles can have a place for the non military security forces and as small transport/utility vehicle for out of contested areas in the military forces.

    Russian Defense Ministry invests in advanced Tiger armored vehicles

    The new vehicle will have a heavy-lift capacity and a V-shaped undercarriage and more comfortable seating for the combat crew and landing troops

    MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. Russia’s Military Industrial Company has started developing a new generation of the Tigr (Tiger) armored vehicles, with the first model likely to be rolled out in 2018, the company’s CEO, Alexander Krasovitsky, told TASS.

    "The development of the next-generation Tiger armored vehicles has been launched. The Defense Ministry has welcomed this project and has earmarked funding for it," he said.

    According to Krasovitsky, the company’s engineers are now working on sketches for the new "Tigers".

    "I think we will see this vehicle next year ‘in the flesh’," he added.

    Earlier Krasovitsky told TASS that the new vehicle will have a heavy-lift capacity and a V-shaped undercarriage and more comfortable seating for the combat crew and landing troops. The vehicle will also get Class 1, Class 2, and, over time, Class-3 protection under the common technical requirements.

    Russia considers testing unmanned Tigr 4x4 tactical vehicle fitted with 30 mm turret

    Russia’s Defense Ministry is considering the program of the trials of the Tigr unmanned armored vehicle equipped with the 30mm gun, CEO of Russia’s Military and Industrial Company Alexander Krasovitsky told TASS.


    VPK's unmanned Tigre 4x4 tactical vehicle unveiled at Armya 2016 exhibition in Russia​

    The Military and Industrial Company is the developer of the Tigr unmanned armored vehicle, he added.

    "We have received the approval from the Defense Ministry to begin the work and we are doing it. Now, we are developing the test program for the vehicle and coordinating it with the Defense Ministry," Krasovitsky said.

    When the program is agreed upon, the company will sign contracts with organizations where the vehicle will be tested, he added.

    "Trials are a complicated process that requires considering lots of details for an objective result. It is too early to set the timeframe but we should complete them [the trials] as quickly as possible," Krasovitsky said.

    Earlier, the CEO told TASS that the company had developed a remote-controlled version of the Tigr armored vehicle.

    The Company VPK has developed the armoured vehicle in conjunction with JSC 766th Department of Engineering and Manufacturing Complement (Russian acronym: UPTK, Upravlenie Proizvodstvenno-Tekhnologicheskoi Komplektacii) as per the Russian Ministry of Defense`s (MoD) order.

    The design and the fire control system of the Tigr vehicle’s combat module are similar to that of the Uran-9 robotic system’s automatic remote-controlled combat module with the 30mm gun.


    The 2A72 30 mm gun fitted on the unmanned Tigr vehicle

    "The RCWS (Remote Controlled Weapon Station) mounted on the new modification of the Tigr vehicle is unified with the remote controlled turret of the Uran-9 unmanned combat ground vehicle (UCGV) developed by the 766th UPTK. Both modules are armed with a 2A72 automatic cannon chambered for 30x165mm round as the main weapon," said the Director General of VPK, Alexander Krasovitsky. "VPK has become the first defense enterprise in the world to integrate a 30 mm automatic cannon with a lightweight two-axle LUV with a combat weight less than 9 t, while retaining the vehicle`s maneuverability and cross-country capacity.", he added.

    The unmanned variant of the Tigr LUV is based on the VPK-233115 Tigr-M SPN Special Purpose Automobile (Russian acronym: ASN, Avtomobil Spetsialnogo Naznacheniya) also developed by the Military Industrial Company.

    The vehicle can be used for combat-reconnaissance operations, fire support missions, and convoys. The main armament can destroy light and medium armoured vehicles on the modern battlefield.

    The 2A72 30mm automatic cannon can also be used as anti-personnel and anti-armour weapon.
